This site is five!

On Monday May 13th 2002, I published my first weblog entry in this new Lotus Domino-based web site template I’d knocked up. The post itself is nothing more than a placeholder, it says nothing interesting at all. But hopefully I have posted slightly more inciteful material since then (occasionally, at least). This site has been one of the better things I’ve done in recent years. I’ve learned a lot about technology, met a lot of great people through it, and of course, it’s indirectly led to other great things. Thanks for dropping by, and here’s to the next five years…

PS obligatory stats: 1,058 weblog entries, 3,033 comments and 47 articles (must up that last number, must up that last number…)
